MSI once again brings together the perfect blend of beauty and performance, this time in its all-new 15.6” FX603 laptop. The MSI FX603 is sheathed in MSI's own anti-scratch, anti-smudge raised totem seal coating technology. The speakers boast a lustrous chrome trim setting off the chiclet keyboard, the raised multipoint touchpad, and the hotkey zone's brush metal finish.

MSI Marketing Director Sam Chern adds that beneath the hood, the aesthetically pleasing FX603 notebook computer packs power in the form of Intel's Core i5 CPU. When it's processing high load applications, MSI’s TDE Turbo Drive technology let's you instantaneously throttle up CPU performance. Worth mentioning is the fact that the FX603 comes with nVidia's new generation GeForce GT 425M discrete graphics card which supports DirectX 11 and when the machine is executing load-heavy graphics applications, MSI's exclusive GPU Boost technology causes the discrete graphics card mode to automatically kick in for powerful graphics processing.

Interesting, but... how much you want to bet it's still 1366x768 in a 15.6" display? Gonna look like crap. At least put a 1440x900 display in it for that size.
